MASTER OF SCIENCE (MSC) IN MATHEMATICS

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE
The M.Sc. course in Mathematics aims at developing mathematical ability in students with acute and abstract reasoning.  The course will enable students to cultivate a mathematician’s habit of thought and reasoning and will enlighten students with mathematical ideas relevant for oneself and for the course itself.  
COURSE DESIGN: Masters in Mathematics is a two year programme spreading over four semesters.  In the first two semesters focus is on the basic courses in mathematics such as Algebra, Topology, Analysis and Graph Theory along with the basic applied course ordinary and partial differential equations. In the third and fourth semester focus is on the special courses, elective courses and skill-based courses including Measure Theory and Lebesgue Integration, Functional Analysis, Computational Fluid Mechanics, Advanced Graph Theory, Numerical Analysis and courses on Data Science. Important feature of the curriculum is that students can specialize in any one of areas (i) Fluid Mechanics, (ii) Graph Theory and (iii) Data Science, with a project on these topics in the fourth semester, which will help the students to pursue research in these topics or grab the opportunities in the industry. To gain proficiency in software skills, four Mathematics Lab papers are introduced one in each semester. viz. Introduction to FOSS tools,  Python Programming for Mathematics (for 2020-2022 batch) , Numerical Methods using Python and Numerical Methods for Boundary Value Problem using Python (for 2019-2021 batch) respectively.  Special importance is given to the skill enhancement courses Research Methodology, Machine Learning (for 2020-2022 batch), and Introduction to Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS) Tools: (GNU Octave) (for 2019-2021 batch).

 

On successful completion of the MSc programme students will be able to
PO1    Engage in continuous reflective learning in the context of technology and scientific advancement.
PO2    Identify the need and scope of the Interdisciplinary research.
PO3    Enhance research culture and uphold the scientific integrity and objectivity
PO4    Understand the professional, ethical and social responsibilities
PO5    Understand the importance and the judicious use of technology for the sustainability of the environment
PO6    Enhance disciplinary competency, employability and leadership skills
 

METHODOLOGY: We offer this course through Lectures, Seminars, Workshops, Group Discussion and talks by experts.

 

ADMISSION PROCEDURE: Candidates who have secured at least 50% of marks in Mathematics in their bachelor degree examination are eligible to apply.  The candidates will then appear for the subject interview.
